The hotel was clean, the staff were really friendly and helpful and the food was really good. There is free wifi, and plenty of rooms that are quiet and quite large, the bed was comfy. Whilst in the bar area the staff chat and make you feel really welcome.

I booked a 1 night stay at the lion and swan hotel for myself and my wife. The hotel was clean and the staff were very attentive. The room had a superb 6 foot wide water bed that was so comfy. Breakfast was fantastic and everything i wanted. My wife loved every minute and is already planning a return visit
